Bye Bye Starbucks!



I'm having some New Year's Resolution fun today to go along with the fun challenge going on at Papercraft Star this week. I hope you all join in on the crafty fun!

New Year's Resolution Project

Make a card, layout, altered item, gift or home decor project using one of your New Year's Resolutions as your inspiration. Be sure to include the New Year's Resolution as part of your project description on your blog!

My goal is to drink more water and stay out of the drive-thru line at Starbucks. 
Pray for me!!! :)

I added some fun elements to my layout including an actual Starbucks coffee cup sleeve and sticker. I printed part of the text on patterned paper using some fun font. I then added brightly colored American Crafts Thickers.



Here's my journaling. I'll miss my Chocolate Chip Frappuccino!



 I added this coffee cup from Cosmo Cricket. 
I used my A.C. Thickers to mark a "BIG RED X" over it.

Here's a full shot of the page!



I also linked this up at Paper Issues for their "New" Challenge.

Great layout and I love the starbucks bits you have added. Good luck with your resolution and all the best for 2011 :)

Cute page and great resolution! I'm rooting for you; especially since a year ago I was in a similar boat. I knew I needed to drink more water but just couldn't care about it. With a lot of effort (and a few bumbling health issues), I've grown to prefer water during my day. Now, it even wakes me better than a cup of coffee!

You can do it!

So nice page! Thanks for sharing :)

I hear ya... I'm trying to cut back on my Peppermint Mocha (I've at least cut it back to 1/2 sweet and no whip, but still...)

Kristina said...

This is totally adorable Angi!! Here is another bonus to skipping the Starbucks, think of all of the scrapbooking supplies you can buy with the money you save!! Good Luck :)

Linda said...

Oh I love your page. I just started really drinking coffee. Chocolate with chocolate cream and chocolate sugar free syrup. But I am not feeling so good so I know it isn't good for me but it taste sooooo good. OK I will have a cup of water right now.
Good luck with your goal.

What a fun layout...typically our bodies are made up over 90% water I think so good for you...mine is made up of 90% caffeine so I am doomed! LOL!

Nicole said...

How fun!! Good luck giving up your Starbucks!

AnitaRex said...

What a great layout! Go and pick up a super cute waterbottle and carry it around you filled up and it will be super easy to drink water! Think of all the money you will save, which you can spend on craft stuff instead!

Denise said...

LMBO, no Starbucks for you, huh? I'm definitely pulling for you!!! Giving up caffeine is not for the faint of heart :)

Tanya R said...

A perfect layout, but my you are brave. I don't think I could give up my Starbucks.
Hugs

OMG I love this! Positive and pretty reinforcement! Awesome job!

Jen Cuthbertson said...

Oh I hear you!! Good luck with your resolution - your layout is so great and gave me a nice chuckle this morning (over my Peet's - but, I brewed it at work so I saved some $$) :)

Jean said...

Great layout!! This needs to be added to my resolutions as well,lol. Just can't seem to stay away from their vanilla bean frappuccinos.

Kate said...

This made me laugh!! What a great layout, Angi!! The cup with the X is such a super touch! Best of luck with your resolution. Each time you avoid the drive-through, you should put the money aside and save up for some crafting goodies. They're much easier on your skin and waistline!!

So fab!! Love your lay-out! This is one resolution I would not be able to keep! I just need my caramel Macchiato!

Linda Kaiser said...

I love it! I am a Diet Coke addict and should do a page like yours to remind me!

Good Luck my friend!!

CraftyGirl said...

You are such a brave girl!! I know I should drink more water but I just can't give up the coffee just yet!! Love that you did a LO about it! Clever idea adding the coffee sleeve!

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

That is such a cute layout, and so much fun too!

Virginia L. said...

What a FUN layout!! Like you, I need to cut back on my coffee....it's HARD to do! I am also known among my crafting friends that I love using Starbucks coffee sleeves for my cards! So glad to see this, Angi!

Tracy said...

Fun layout Angi! You've set a pretty high goal for yourself if you like coffee like most people I know do. :-) You go girl!

Fern said...

Too funny!! I'll be praying for you, Angi!! Love how you've added the starbucks coffee sleeve!!! Hugs!!

♥♥♥Jan ♥♥♥ said...

You made me laugh, girlfriend !!!

Kimberly Anne said...

Ok I could absolutely drink more water but give up coffee and I might have no friends left! I'd be one cranky lady. Hahaha! I love that you made a layout from this resolution. It will be a good reminder throughout the year. I will have to check up on you and see how good your following through cause that would be tough for me.

Cassie said...

Love this layout!!! You have more will power than I do! I could never give up caffeine!!!
Thanks for mentioning us and thanks for linking up!!!
You rock!!
